Monday Night Football features the Los Angeles Rams on the road to take on the Arizona Cardinals to complete an exciting Week 14 in the NFL.
Our team of experts at VSiN has the game covered from all angles, with a market report from South Point oddsmaker Chris Andrews, along with a pick on the game from VSiN's Wes Reynolds, Adam Burke and Ben Brown from Pro Football Focus.
Los Angeles Rams at Arizona Cardinals (-2.5, 51.5)
Andrews: One of the best Monday night betting attractions all season. I opened Arizona -3 and sharps took the points. They also bet the Rams to win straight up on the moneyline at + 135 and + 130. I’m currently at Arizona -2.5, with the ML at Cards -140/Rams + 120. Many bettors are laying the shorter number with Arizona. This has the look of a game that could hop between -2.5 and -3 until kickoff. You regulars know I prefer to sit on the whole number in those circumstances. I’m hoping to get back to Arizona -3 soon, but the market doesn’t always cooperate! That clear support for the Rams on the moneyline might signal a solid 3 isn’t in the cards … for the Cards. My opening total of 52 was bet down to 51.5. I am taking some Over play since the adjustment. If this game gets hyped as another potential shootout, the total could rise a bit before kickoff.
Reynolds: Week 14’s Monday nighter is a crucial NFC West matchup where the Cardinals can clinch their first playoff berth since 2015, while the Rams need a win to stay in the NFC West race. After a 3-0 start, the Rams (-4) were dominated at home by Arizona 37-20 in Week 4.
